The Convertible is a great Kayak to Geocache with ... solo or with a friend. And it works great on ocean, rivers and lakes

Alternate Seat Choice

I have the AE1007R Convertable XZE241GA707 and love it.
My question is with regards to the seat.
Will the AE1023 seat fit in the Kayak and connect properly? I would like the extra lift the seat bottom give for my wife. 8)

She ...

I also have a convertable, mostly paddled solo but today my wife came out with me for a 5.5 kilometre lake paddle and it was awesome. It takes a little work to stay synchronized with your wife :) but a fine day. I find is easy to handle on ocean and lakes solo, and love the ability to go tandem when...

We got out for a paddle today on Nine Mile River, Nova Scotia, Canada ... a little ice left but a beautiful day for the first paddle of the year. My son joined me tandem then we switched out to solo and he paddled some more ... I think he's hooked on the AF Convertable (does that mean he buys one or...

We live in Nova Scotia, a little north of you in Ohio and plan to get the Kayak out for a weekend paddle ... I think we can dodge the ice

I have not tried mine for a diving Kayak ... yet, but I will give it a go this spring.

I expect a good 3 lbs anchor would work, a Dive flag for the Kayak, and a buddy to play with. :shock:

I got my convertable last fall, I have paddled on the ocean and in a windy lake. This is one stable kayak that cuts through rough water very smoothly. I am very happy with it! I also have the single and tandem deck, backbone and spray skirts. 8)

I plan to take my convertable on the Shubenacadie River in the spring to play in the tidal bore. The river is only 1 Km from hone and tides from the Bay of Fundy rise up to 16.8 metres. In the Shubenacadie River this incoming tide creates a wave, varying from a small ripple to 10 ft+ in height. This...

Great pictures, your Expedition and Dragonfly look right at home with the rest of the Kayaks.

Now that is one relaxed looking paddler!

Hearn Island, Nova Scotia, Canada 8 Oct 07

For my 1st ocean paddle, we went from Prospect, Nova Scotia to Roost Island. A stop at Hearn Island gave a great chance to try a landing on both a rocky & sandy beach. The rocky beach landing was much easier for me than for my friend in his hardshell Kayak. I thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and handl...
